NYC: Disturbing video captures machete attack in Bronx bodega

Disturbing video captures the moment a group of attackers chased two other men into a Bronx bodega this week — slashing one of them with a machete.

Two separate clips, released by the United Bodegas of America early Tuesday, shows the attackers hurling items at the door as the duo inside attempt to defend themselves — one even holding what appears to be a candy dispenser as a shield.

During the fracas, one of the victims was slashed across the eye and forehead before cops and an ambulance arrived, according to the coalition of bodega owners.

The incident happened on Sunday around 5 p.m., but Fernando Mateo, spokesman for the group, declined to immediately provide the location where it happened, which he said was to protect the safety of the bodega owner.
